Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told a whopper about the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett over the weekend that was so big even CNN was forced to fact-check him on it.
The 77-year-old, who along with his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris of California, has refused to answer questions about packing the Supreme Court, has made President Donald Trump’s nomination of Barrett a key campaign issue.
But when discussing the thorn Barrett is in the side of Democrats, Biden made the unfounded claim Saturday that her nomination is not constitutional.
In an attempt to deflect attention away from the continued controversy surrounding his refusal to answer court-packing questions, the former vice president said, “The only court packing going on right now is going on with Republicans packing the court now.
“It’s not constitutional what they are doing,” Biden told reporters in Delaware.
